Description: Appropriate for introductory criminology and criminology theory course taught at universities and colleges across Canada. Canadian Criminology: Strategies and Perspectives takes a critical ideological approach to the study of criminology. The major strengths of this text are its breadth of Canadian content and its inclusion of cross-cultural comparisons. The text incorporates both "empirical" and "radical" approaches to understanding and reducing crime. The third edition of Canadian Criminology: Strategies and Perspectives incorporates numerous changes, including updated statistics, a more in depth coverage of gender and radical criminology, as well as more material on restorative justice. The new edition has been restructured, now including 18 chapters and new pedagogical features within each chapter.
